St. Paul’s Episcopal Church is seeking a talented and inspired musician to lead its music program to begin fall, 2022. See the Job Post below (downloadable pdf is here). Who We Are St. Paul’s is a welcoming, diverse, and affirming community of approximately 127 weekly congregants. Rooted in the Episcopal/Anglican tradition, we have a contemporary view of spirituality and religion in the world today.
St. Paul’s is well known for music both as part of the service and as a concert venue. Music is an essential part of our worship experience and highly valued by our congregation. Our choir consists of 10-12 volunteers with good intonation and sight-reading abilities, and four professional section leaders. The choir sings at the weekly 10 am Sunday service, and monthly Evensong and Compline. Our repertoire spans centuries of Anglican tradition, as well as spirituals and contemporary works. The acoustics in our beautiful space are live and clear, ideal for choral and chamber performances. Instruments include a 1934 Austin Organ, a 6’ Yamaha Parlor Grand Piano (sanctuary) and a two-octave set of handbells. Concerts by outside groups are organized by our Friends of Music Ministry.
We share our campus with our primary ministry, St. Paul’s Episcopal School, a non-sectarian K-8 school of almost 400 children. There may be opportunity to develop a music program that features children from the school as well as the parish.
